Double Takes — Preview Excerpt:

For artist Brian McClear, painting still life and portraiture—often working on both concurrently—is a fascinating pleasure. His portraits explore the relationship a person has with their tattoos, while his

still life subject matter pairs found objects to create playful stories, social commentary and stunning visual effects. Opening in early June, McClear’s show Double Takes: Parings and Portraits features at least 16 new, large-scale paintings hosted at Alofft Gallery in Litchfield, Connecticut. “Brian’s work is as beautiful as it is thought-provoking,” says Craig Connolly, Alofft Gallery director. “His use of humor, irony and nostalgia facilitates a novel and terribly poignant commentary on the human experience.” (Cont.)
